I liked the whole wings sold in the fresh chicken section and then, when they went to the semi fresh wing pieces I was disappointed. They were tiny.
I found the large bag of frozen wings that are separated.
These are by far the largest chicken wings we have ever bought.
I am going back with intention to buy two bags as they were big and very good.
The frozen wing sections by far have been the best buy in Costco without me even knowing it.
I now will only buy the big bag of frozen wing sections at Costco.

I use to buy the frozen wings but found them small and inconsistent in size. Based on your comment, I'll check again to see if the frozen wings have changed.

But..... where's Timnath?

Had to look it up. The Costco in Thornton is actually closer in driving time than Timnath. Either one is still a good 2 hours away.

Yeah, it's 3.5 hours for us...a twice a year trip. Maybe I should have said Fort Collins...

Costco has the best coconut oil around! When it's 2 for 1, you can get 2 very large containers of it for around $20. That lasts my family a year, and we're moderate to heavy users of coconut oil.

Looking forward to it! Never got the Amex. Now I can get miles from Costco on my VISA!

Don't get too excited Andy - they send out their own, not sure if it qualifies for miles.

They may be offering a Costco VISA but I think they have to accept ALL VISAs.

Yes they do. I really didn't want another credit card as we already have a Chase Freedom Visa, so I researched, and Costco does state that. Keep using your AE till June 20 though.

We just got the new Costco Visas a couple days ago, and against my better judgment, I activated them as DH thought it was a good deal. The one advantage that I see with the Costco card is it doubles as an ID to get you into the store.
